If your kids’ school vacation was a movie, would it be in the horror genre? You’re not alone. The good news is, lots of parents who are in your boat are turning to technology to help them – and you can too. Using home security technology from FE Moran Security can help your family enjoy a simpler summer. Here are a couple of key things it can do.
Support You in Scheduling Challenges
In an already busy summer, few things are worse than other people’s scheduling conflicts imposing on your plans. When a repair person says they’ll show up sometime between 8 AM and 5 PM (that’s always how it goes, right?), parents either have to instruct the kids to let them in or take time off to deal with it themselves. One way to avoid those options is to use the keyless entry capabilities of your home security system so that repair people can come in and out using a temporary access code. You can even generate an alert on your phone when the code is used, so you can be aware when they are entering.
Now, what about scheduling challenges with the kids? Summers are notorious for these concerns, and you can mitigate them by giving temporary codes to friends, neighbors and trusted fellow parents who are picking kids up or babysitting. They can be deactivated at the end of the day, so the code can only be used to gain access to the house during the time you need them to have it.
Fill in the Gaps Kids Leave
Speaking of notorious, kids are legendary for leaving gaps in home security. They race out the door, hop on their bikes, and forget all about locking the front door. Worse even, they may leave the garage door standing wide open. These aren’t great for home security, but they can be remedied immediately if the family has the right tools.
If your home security system has smart technology, you can receive an alert on your phone the moment the kids leave the door open. If it’s the garage door, you can close it from work with your phone – and if it’s the front door equipped with smart locks, you can lock it the very same way. Have teenagers? Unfortunately, they aren’t immune to summer brain drain. Teens with summer jobs are bound to hurry out the door with their uniforms on and badges in hand, forgetting to lock the door to the house. Smart home technology can help you fill in the gaps for them, too.
When it comes to using your home security technology to reduce the stress and increase the fun in your family’s summer, these examples are only the tip of the iceberg. To find out more ways it can help, contact F.E. Moran Security Solutions for a free home security evaluation.
